Future of Engineering

norelem will be bringing a variety of its clamping levers, tension levers, and handles to the Hannover Messe exhibition.

With the aim of demonstrating why having a wide component range is key to engineering success, the company will once again return to the leading German engineering and manufacturing trade fair, which takes place between 1-5 April at the Hannover Fairground. It is a chance for engineers and manufacturers to see just a small sample of the more than 45,000 components that norelem can offer through its industry-leading catalogue, THE BIG GREEN BOOK.

To highlight the benefits of its colossal portfolio, norelem will showcase amongst others its varied range of clamping and tension levers in Hall 16, Stand E17. These levers are mainly used for the manual adjustment in fixing tasks and clamping applications, including machine, tool and plant construction through to measurement technology, sports equipment construction and furniture building. An example of their usage includes the quick fixing of mounting plates or for tensioning tool components.

Marcus Schneck, CEO of norelem, said: “While clamping and tension levers are an everyday requirement for engineers and make up just a tiny fraction of THE BIG GREEN BOOK, our range will showcase the huge variations norelem offer. Depending on the application, users can select clamping and tension levers with different thread diameters, handle sizes and materials and colours. From steel and die-cast zinc to plastic and glass fibre reinforced plastic injection moulding, our customers can always quickly access the right component for their specific line of work.”

norelem’s levers consist of a handle lever in which a thread insert (internal thread or external thread) is installed. The components are designed for quick release and are available in a variety of colours.

When the grip is pulled up, it disconnects from the internal toothing and can be freely rotated. When the grip is released, it automatically engages again and can be manually tightened or loosened. Clamping levers are mainly fitted to machines for clamping or positioning applications.

As well as levers, norelem will also be exhibiting its range of handles, including pull, tubular and recessed handles at the show. The different handles are extremely versatile, ergonomically designed and available in many different sizes and colours.

“We know that handles are used all over the engineering world, as elements to open and shut covers, panels and hoods on machinery through to the furniture industry and in sports equipment,” added Schneck. “As they are part of daily working life, the handles must be exceptionally functional and simple to use, which is why we stock a range of over 600 handles suitable for all types of uses at norelem.”

“Recessed handles, which integrate into the surface they are attached to, are also increasingly specified. They avoid any snagging or obtrusive elements in the factory environment that could cause health and safety issues but are also important for design considerations in creating minimalistic, clean lines on furniture, for example.”

“In today’s high-speed world, we understand at norelem that it’s about having a variety of components that will suit different needs, but also about speed of service. This is why we hold 98 per cent of our stock, ready and available for delivery. This means that we can quickly supply components for any situation, whether it’s a new design project, or for fixing a machine that’s gone down.”

norelem’s products can be ordered via its dedicated eCommerce shop online. The company also provides free CAD data and dimensions for all its components is available through THE BIG GREEN BOOK and is also downloadable online.
